This record is dedicated to the many persons at Woodlawn Cemetery whose stones are either missing or unreadable. Many are also not listed in the Florida Death Index, so we will never know who they are. In recognition of this, the City of Fort Lauderdale has erected a series of plaques with known names. In visiting this cemetery, we were able to locate persons not listed on the markers, and also some who were missed,or misecorded.
Some of the destruction of these graves is due to vandalism, but some is due to poor materials and neglect. Many families could not afford to purchase tombstones, so made their own. These are very sweet and deserve preserving.
Volunteers are needed to take pictures of the remaining stones and upload to this site.
